Research Interests

My research interest is human factors and statistical modeling of car driving. My earlier work focused on studying the effectiveness of technological solutions, such as visual, auditory, and vibrotactile interfaces, for training and assisting drivers in simulators. I became intrigued by the fact that large differences exist between the behaviors of individual drivers, and broadened my approach to include the study of individual differences, driver behavior modeling, multivariate statistics, and research methodology. Why some drivers make errors and others commit traffic violations is a challenging research question, with broad implications for theories of road safety and human-machine interaction. I have previously secured a VENI grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). In recent projects granted by the Technology Foundation STW and the Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN), our research will focus on driver assessment and human-machine interfaces for highly automated driving, in cooperation with car manufacturers, universities, and research institutes across Europe.
